Misdemeanor Conditional Discharge - Is a conviction, but unlike probation it doesn't require you to report to a probation officer.

Misdemeanor Supervision - The benefit of supervision is that it is not a conviction.

Statute of limitations for Felonies and Misdemeanors -

What does Statute of limitations mean: it gives the Prosecution a maximum amount of time (usually years) to charge a person with an offense after it was allegedly committed.

Most felonies carry a 3 year statute of limitations.

Most misdemeanors carry a 1 1/2 year statute of limitations.

Some charges carry with them a longer statute of limitations, such as murder, weapons based or sexual offenses, violent crimes, conservation violations and most fraud charges.
